RunAviation becomes a subsidiary of Air Austral

Posted 15 April 2019 · Add Comment

RunAviation, specialised in "EVASAN" and private air transport in southern Indian Ocean, has become the newest subsidiary of Air Austral.

The company will henceforth enable Air Austral to strengthen and diversify its operations within the region. Both airlines be will operate on a complementary basis.

RunAviation will now offer: "EVASAN" trips (in addition to scheduled flights) and on-demand business and tourist flights as well as other services like air taxi from the south to the north of Reunion Island, transport of spare parts, goods, documents.

For several months, the company has been using the hangar of Air Austral, initially for an annual maintenance check and then for regulatory maintenance operations. Today, both companies take a new step forward to enhance their collaboration and business.

RunAviation has been looking for a new investor for months to solve its financial problems and Air Austral needed a solution to transport spare parts and mechanics when an aircraft is grounded outside the territory.  Air Austral became the 100% owner of this airline after months of study and evaluation.

RunAviation's fleet consists of a Beechcraft King Air F90, a twin-engine turboprop aircraft with its own CTA. It can be configured for cargo and medical evacuation. It offers on-demand trips from Reunion Island to Mauritius, Rodrigues, Madagascar, Mayotte Seychelles, Comoros Islands and Mozambique.

The company also operates a shuttle service between Saint-Denis and Saint-Pierre (in Reunion Island). RunAviation offers flexible services to the business community as well as to families, groups of friends or sports groups who wish to escape for a few days in the Indian Ocean. It also caters for medical evacuation and fully cargo flights to deliver spare parts or other goods.
